Money. What a difficult topic to write about. Looking back to my whole life, and I sometimes realize the whole world’s issue is somehow originated from this issue: money. Lacking money creates a poor mind or afford less heart, and trigger meaningless trouble or in the worst-case scenario, war. Money would be a kind of the biggest criteria for anything. Of course, money cannot be the most valuable thing on this entire earth, but I cannot refute the idea that there is no o more value than money has.
Sounds a big problem? Today’s topic is how to save money to live peacefully. I have terrible money management skills so that it is a very tough thing to try to save money. When I encounter people who are saving money constantly or limiting their buying for their savings, I am simply struck with awe, at the same time to realize how am I bad at saving money. The reason is simple in my case. I’m just buying stuff that seems not that valuable, or buying kinds of stuff without any budget planning.
Now that I became a really serious guy about money or savings, I even set a goal for my savings. I’m trying to save 1 million yen. My new hobby is saving money. I personally have a huge motivation to achieve the goals that I once set. By saving money, I think I can finally take control over myself, and find a peaceful mind which is far from any monetary issue.
Time flies so fast. I’m feeling like my basic personality hasn’t been changed from high school days. Actually that doesn’t mean much to me. I mean, I feel like I’ve been always in trouble since my high school days. The core problem I’ve been thinking from my high school days was “Who The Hell Am I?” What is my future I should pursue or what would be the most suitable job to me. I don’t know what this disease is called. I’ve been looking for myself. What is my passion anyway, or like that.
To focus and try to solve the problem, actually it is not a good idea try to be alone in my case. One of the biggest reason why I broke up with my ex girlfriend was because she frequently talk about the marriage plan after being in a relation after 1 year and a half month. It is really usual thing to think about such thing for 27 or 28. But, something has not made sense in my mind, and I asked her to end the relationship. The excuse at that time for her was “because I have things to do before getting married”.
Now, more than a year has been passed since the breaking up. And then I hit upon an idea. The excuse was bullshit. Nothing I could achieve, and I couldn’t do anything great with all my alone time. Rather tried to hang out with friends and became more lazy guy, who don’t care future that much. Without “push”, I can’t do anything, then I realized.
And now, my life situation has been changed. My serious marriage plan is suddenly emerging before me. There is a woman who “push” me to think of and face my future seriously. Thanks to her, now I can feel very motivated and positive against the future. Now I’m feeling like I should drive it like you stole it.
